Cryptocurrency brokerage platform Voyager Digital recently reduced its daily withdrawal limit down to $10,000.
That’s a 60% drop from its previous $25,000 limit, prior to its financial problems relating to Three Arrow Capital (3AC).
- Voyager published its new withdrawal limit on its site in an update on Wednesday. It states that users can withdraw $10,000 within a 24-hour period, with a maximum of 20 withdrawals.

- 3AC’s co-founder revealed that the firm would seek bailout options last week. Binance, however, has already voiced its decision not to extend such a credit line to rescue the company.
- Other crypto lending platforms, including Babel Finance and Celsius, have been forced to halt withdrawals entirely.
On Thursday, crypto exchange CoinFLEX had to do the same, while also placing all FLEX coin trades on hold.
